Origen

Late Middle English trice 'a tug', figuratively 'an instant', from Middle Dutch trīsen 'pull sharply', related to trīse 'pulley'.

Más
  • Unlike most tri- words, trice has nothing to do with ‘three’. It comes from early Dutch trisen ‘to pull sharply, hoist’, and in the Middle Ages at a trice meant ‘at one pull or tug’ rather than ‘in a moment, immediately’. By the late 17th century the original form of the expression had given way to the more familiar in a trice.
